The ‘House of Dragon’ Ratings are Steadily Increasing as it Nears its Season Finale

Undoubtedly, one of the most well-liked HBO productions in its history is Game of Thrones. The show is only one of several that enticed people to watch through the final season.

After the last season was broadcast, the series drawn criticism. Fans and critics disagreed with the conclusion.

HBO, however, would not allow one of its well-liked shows to be questioned, so it developed the House of Dragon.

A prequel to “Game of Thrones,” “House of Dragon” takes place around 200 years before the events of the main chronology. The Targaryen family, whose insignia is a dragon, is the main subject of the television series.

Before Jon Snow’s true identity was revealed in the latter seasons of “Game of Thrones,” Daenerys Targaryen—who is said to be the last of the Targaryens—was given a lot of attention.

Although there is much to consider when deciding whether to watch the series or not, it surprisingly generates significant revenue for HBO. Since its August premiere, each episode of “House of Dragon” has drawn an average of 29 million viewers.

While the season finale of “Game of Thrones” averaged 46 million viewers each episode, season 7 had 32.7 million people per episode.

The House of Dragon’s viewership increased by 3% when HBO chose to change the characters and leap the timeframe in episode six. Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen was recast as part of the character update.

According to entertainment research company Parrot Analytics, the demand for the program is 64 times greater than that of the typical show released by various producers globally.

The firm’s gauge for demand includes audience social interactions and downloads of a certain episode. The “House of Dragon” witnessed a 138 demand after episode seven, meaning that the show’s overall demand climbed by 114% from its inception to its peak.

Despite the series’ NBC time slot, the strong ratings are still being recorded.

NFL games are well-liked by spectators, and the fact that a lot of people are watching House of Dragon tells a lot about the quality of the production.
